Leeds United “offer on the table” for Boca Juniors midfielder – Italian reports

According to Italian site Tuttomercatoweb, Championship side Leeds United have tabled an offer for Boca Juniors’ Uruguayan international midfielder Nahitan Nandez.

It was reported by Tuttomercatoweb last week that Championship promotion chasers Leeds United were among a host of sides interested in Uruguayan international midfielder Nahitan Nandez – who currently plays in Argentina with Boca Juniors.

It was reported here on The72 that the midfielder reportedly has a release clause of just under £26 million, which Leeds would only consider triggering if they were to win promotion to the Premier League. But, contrasting reports have emerged claiming they have already made their move.

Now, it has been reported by Tuttomercatoweb that there is now an offer on the table from Leeds United. The report added that Italian giants Roma have joined fellow Serie A sides Cagliari, Sampdoria and Fiorentina in the group of sides monitoring Nandez’s situation.

The Uruguayan currently plays for Argentinian side Boca Juniors, where he has been since joining in 2017. He has played 48 games for the Primera Division side, netting six goals and providing four assists along the way.

Nandez featured heavily in Uruguay’s 2018 World Cup run last summer, where they made it to the Quarter Finals before being knocked out by eventual winners France. The midfielder played in all five games, starting in four. Overall, he has represented his country 22 times since making his debut in 2015 at the age of 19.

An energetic midfielder, the 23-year-old can play in both centre-midfield or right-midfield. Nandez is a strong tackler and a good passer but has the pace to play out wide when needed. He also captained Uruguay’s Under-20s for much of his youth international career, proving himself as a leader.
